Title: High School
Post by: jckrenrut on August 28, 2005, 05:29:33 PM
Hey all,   I am currently a high school student in wyoming.  I use my pocket pc everyday to assist me in my learning.  I was not told to use my ppc, but rather purchased one myself, and began finding ways to use it towards my education.  I use it many ways, which are outlined in an article that I wrote for Pocket PC Magazine's July issue. 
Recently, I have become more active on forum sites such as this one because I would like to become more involved with the ppc's in education community.  I would like to learn where we are going with the many projects that I hear about and would like to become part of these projects in the near future.  Because of my status as a high school student and only a teenager, I dont have as many oppertunities to attend seminars or talks about handheld learning; although I would love to.  If anyone hears about any education seminars occuring in the midwest (united states), or knows of any way that I could become more involved with the handheld learing community, please contact me with my given e-mail address.

Hi there, I am a college student in Ireland writing a paper on the use of mobile hand-held computers in Irish schools (not very common) and wonder if you could give me a run down on exactly what you use your hand-held for.  I have a Dell Axim X30 and find it very limiting because there is very little space.  I developed a short lesson involving the use of pictures and speech and could not fit it on the device!  How do you and your friends use your PDAs.   Love to hear from you.
